the first presidential debate is over. who did viewers think was the big winner? speaking of winners, mark. >> a live look at the coliseum, the oakland athletics are the champs, doing something that has never been done in major league baseball history, more on the big win coming up. >> the weather is different than
7:01 am
first george with the hot spot. >> a number of hot spots now. starting first with the east bay. oni 580, westbound direction, an accident first in livermore and then in dublin has really backed up the ride but we've seen the slight downtic in the drive time from 48 to 45 minutes. and new problems for the nimitz freeway southbound of oakland san diego into hayward, in addition to the accident at 92 interchange there is another crash, where all traffic had to be stopped for a while. in the south bay we continue to be jammed on the 101 northbound, earlier occurring accident at julien gone. a continuing crash at great america parkway northbound that has the great america parkway off-ramp shut down and likely will be for some time longer. traffic is jammed on 101 heading out of the coyote valley and north into santa clara. it is a gray start to the morning. check out the overcast
7:02 am
conditions. as we look live at downtown san francisco. chilly out there, temperatures sitting in the 50s. later this afternoon we'll be lucky if we see any low 80s whatsoever. in fact our warmest spot, expected to be in the upper 70s. a cooling trend on the horizon, wet weather in the forecast, details coming up in my next report. decision 2012 now. let's talk politics. the first presidential debate is now officially in the history books. it was at times contentious but not overly hostile. president obama and mitt romney traded jabs here and there mostly about how to bring jobs back to america and other domestic issues as well. take a listen. >> i like the fact that in my state we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did instead was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. >> over the last two years health care premiums have gone up. it's true, but they've gone up slower than any time in the last 50 years. >> i put forward a specific $4
7:03 am
trillion deficit reduction plan. >> my number one principle is there will be no tax cut that adds to the deficit. >> it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loop loopholes that only effect high income individuals to either avoid raising the deficit or burdennening the middle class. it's math. >> according to a nationwide poll last night 2/3 of people who watched the debate think romney won the showdown. the vice presidential candidates are scheduled to square off next week in kentucky. the oakland athletics with one of the most amazing wins in franchise history after rallying from a 5-1 deficit. they beat texas 12-5 sweeping the series in front of a sold-out crowd. and they win the degrees -- division on the last game of the season. they are now the only team in major league baseball history to come back from five games down with fewer than 10 games to play.
7:04 am
one of our solo reporters is at the coliseum. jackie with more. >> reporter: do you think they would do it any other way? 13 games back on june 30th. four runs down yesterday in the fourth and they came back both times to win the american league west. the most improperly story in baseball. unbelievable what they accomplished this year. they won six in a row. at the end of the season as you said, they came from five games back with nine to play. swept the texas rangers yesterday. twice the payroll they do to win the american league west. that means that they are going to detroit to start the playoff series on saturday. now yesterday here it was frenetic and the fans were going crazy. we had a chance to talk to some of them after the game. they were ready to go with their amazing a's. >> i've been waiting all my life for something like that. watching the a s back in 2000, i was never at the game,
7:05 am
but this time i was at the game. seeing the celebration the last three days, remarkable. >> they are going all the way. >> i'm experiencing history right now so i'm excited. >> i didn't really believe in the as, i had to be a part of it today. they've been making magic happen all year. >> reporter: it took to the last game in the season but finally the playoff pitcher is in place and we have a look at what you can expect from the oakland as starting on saturday. they go to detroit today, will practice friday, first game is saturday. 3:00. then they play again sunday. then they come back home to start the series here at home on tuesday. wednesday and thursday if needed, mark. it's not just green and gold fever. for the first time since 2003
7:06 am
the giants and the as are both in the playoffs. it's good to see both teams playing in october. >> thank you. incredibly the giants and as finish with the same record, 94 wins and 68 losses on the season. as for the giants buster posey becomes the first giant since barry bonds in 2004 to win the national league batting title. the giants with their playoff run at home this saturday at at&t park. the game on sunday, still awaiting for times to be determined by major league baseball. they have to compete with the nfl on sunday. then that game on tuesday in cincinnati and then a game if necessary on wednesday. in cincinnati. so we'll follow the latest with the athletics and giants. in addition to sports, fleet week in the bay area the blue angels will be practicing this afternoon over the bay. if you look up you'll see them. let's turn to our solo reporter live along the embarcadero
7:07 am
talking about some of the action and what is going on. hi, yoli. >> it kicks off today. and it's here at pier 30, 32 with the u.s. macon island carrier. they are starting it off with the two-day seminar on disaster response andheim attorney relief -- humanitarian relief. you have the mayor of san francisco coming down to give opening remarks to the seminar. then we go later on in the day with the practicing of the blue angels. so you are going to see them around 1:00. that is when you can start looking in the air and they will do a couple of passes. around 3:00 they will start doing some practice maneuvers as well. let's show you video of them from last year. this is what is going to be a very busy weekend. of course they will be doing a show on friday, saturday and sunday. aside from the blue angels, the headliners, you also have a bunch of other aircraft that are going to be doing a show. that starts earlier in the day. so really all the shows start
7:08 am
at 12:30, starting saturday for the next three days. then on top of all the air shows you have the parades of ships. other military ships will come in under the golden gate bridge, parked by pier 80. people can go on the ships for free, to view them, and that is going to be available to the public all weekend long, saturday, sunday and monday. so very busy here in the city this weekend. >> interesting. the ships will be parked. the parking for people will be tough. so they are recommending you take public transit or day home and watch the blue angels live special at home. that is saturday, october 6th at 3:00. we're going to take a break. 7:08. let's look live from our golden gate bridge camera. beautiful shot there as we see the two towers, cloud cover up above. otherwise a pretty nice start this morning.
7:09 am

7:11 am
watching a sharp rise for the dow, up 97 now. despite weak factory orders coming in a few moments ago. weak september retail sales and weak unemployment numbers. the dow up 97. watching the drop for hewlett-packard, down 3% after being down nearly 13% yesterday on the comments from the ceo as she tries to turn that company
7:12 am
around. we'll be right back. i moved to new york to work in fashion. i came here with just a suitcase, maybe two. and luckily i found an apartment just three blocks away from t.j.maxx, which was perfect because i needed everything and i still needed to make rent.
7:13 am
t.j.maxx is such a great place cause i know when i go in there i'm gonna score. they've got such great deals on all my favorite brands. fashion direct from designers. savings direct to you. this maxxinista can make it anywhere. t.j.maxx. let us make a maxxinista out of you.
7:14 am
erika derry: and the fact that cacalifornia isn't making it a priority frustrates me. dan hurd: i'm ashamed of that, and i don't want this to continue for my daughter. brenda kealing: prop 38 is going to bring a lot of money to our schools. suzan solomon: the money stays at the school site. cade derry: what i would really like to see is that the teachers... that were laid off come back to the school. navaz hurd: a smaller class size. navaz hurd: as a mom i want that. as a teacher i want that. prop 38 is an opportunity of a generation. governor romney is a skilled debater and last night he was able to elevate his level of performance but didn't change the fundamental tine mix of the -- dynamics of the race nor did he change some of the policies that got us into the economic
7:15 am
mess we had. he embraced when the president pressed him that he wants to turn medicare into a voucher program. >> i was surprised at how well mit did and i think it was very important because he came across as the person he really is, as opposed to how he's been portrayed by hundreds of millions of dollars of attack ads and i was surprised at the president's poor performance. >> there are signs this morning the race is tightening. in some of the battleground states where president obama had enjoyed an advantage. today republican mitt romney and running mate paul ryan are off to virginia as the president campaigns in colorado and wisconsin. let's turn it over to george in the traffic department. he has been following numerous hot spots. >> that's right. it's turned into a very odd morning because we're tracking problems in the east and south bay. let's start with the ride from the altamont pass after the dublin interchange. we saw the drive time drop from 48 to 45 minutes. i think we're going to see it start to climb again as we move
7:16 am
closer to the peak of the community here. so that is a real rough commute. so is the ride out of oakland south into sa ly-and-row and continuing farther south into hayward, that is taking pressure off the nimitz freeway from fremont to millipedeas but we have two separate accidents. one at 92. look at the south bay drive time, 48 minutes, it's going to continue to climb out of the coyote valley heading north up towards santa clara. earlier accident at julien. a crash still being dealt with at great america parkway. look at the camera in san jose. you'll see that virtually all the lanes here heading north from the guadeloupe parkway to great america parkway are just jammed. it's like this from the 280/101 interchange. at the bay bridge the westbound ride backed up right to the macarthur maze. and even the approach now from the nimitz freeway is up to 20 minutes.
7:17 am
that's the backup and the drive time across the upper deck to carry you to downtown san francisco. let's go to the weather center now with erica. >> good morning. it's cloudy over at the bay bridge. same story here as we look live at the golden gate bridge. that fog being certainly back in the forecast and we're seeing it impact most of the bay area. we have delays on arriving flights. at sfo, delays average 53 minutes. no word if it will be impacting departing flights as well. something to watch. satellite and radar does show cloud cover is streaming into the bay area. it's because of a low we are tracking well off of our coast. with that it's ushering in a lot of morning fog, it will hang on into the afternoon for the coastline. and as that low continues to approach the bay area we do have the potential for some sprinkles. i'll get to that in the extended forecast coming up in a minute.
7:18 am
focusing our attention on current conditions, upper 50s in fairfield. downtown san francisco 61. redwood city 61. much cooler conditions on tap. we've lost about 10 degrees for some of the inland areas. so temperatures are nosediving. we're talking 60s for east big sur and coast. concord and san jose could climb into the 70s by 12:00. as we push into the afternoon highs for the most part continuing with 60s and 70s. we have orange on the screen. certainly a possibility for places like livermore, the delta, looks like we could pick up an 80-degree reading for brentwood as we head into the afternoon. so again expect cooler weather, sweater weather now. maybe a shirt as we head into the afternoon for the south bay. 73 on tap for mountainview. 80 los gatos. pretty mild conditions, sunny in livermore, 79. and 68 in san leandro.
7:19 am
comfortable conditions will persist for east bay shoreline, mid to upper 60s. 63 in downtown san francisco. remember yesterday we were in the 70s. clear skies, low 60s for ocean beach and 62da daily city. so yes, a cooling trend is on the horizon, looks like a 20% chance of showers that low will probably hit the bay area monday heading into tuesday. so that is something we'll certainly monitor. if we see any moisture it won't be widespread, it will be spotty at best. looks like we will try up by wednesday and looks like temperatures will be a little bit warmer. in some of the local headlines -- the family of a high school student killed by oakland police is getting their first look now at the police report that outlines what happened. allen blue further was shot and killed by officers in may. police say the 18-year-old pointed a gun at them, forcing them to open fire. however the family's civil rights attorney says the police report does raise some serious questions for him about the
7:20 am
shooting. >> it's pretty clear given the physical evidence that no shots were fired by mr. bloomford, no gunshot residue and no evidence of the gun near him had been fired. so whoever made that statement was clearly wrong. >> oakland police chief howard jordan released a statement regarding that shooting. this release is not intended to address all questions and criticisms that exist. however, critical issues regarding the investigation, the providing of medical care and aid, summary witness statements and lab tests, the coroner's report and independently corroborated facts and circumstances as they existed on the scene are addressed through this release. in the meantime, the oakland police department is also under fire from those who say that the court mandated reforms are not being implemented so attorneys are now going to ask for the federal government to take over the department today. attorney the attorney said no
7:21 am
one person is to blame by lack of reform by the police department. >> it's a systemic cultural problem that is not being addressed by the city. not being addressed by the city administrator. not being addressed by the city council. not being addressed by the mayor. and not being addressed most of all by the police department. again he's expected to file court papers today asking for a judge to appoint a receiver to take over control of the police department. a mistrial declared in the federal cocaine fraud trial of san francisco -- a san francisco crime lab technician. the u.s. judge says the jurors in trial of deborah madden did not reach a unanimous verdict on the charges. the jurors did agree that madden took cocaine from the laboratory in 2009 but disagreed on whether prosecutors prove she did so by means of deception. that was the technicality. the judge set a hearing for next week to discuss a possible retrial. 7:21. we'll be back with more in a
7:22 am
couple of minutes. thank you for waking up with us. on this thursday morning. we're looking live over some cloudy skies over san francisco. so this shows you the big weather change. the shift we've seen happen between the heat wave and cooldown.
7:23 am
7:24 am
welcome back. 7:in. in bay area news federal investigators are investigating
7:25 am
anti-semitism allegations at uc berkeley. "the los angeles times" reports recent graduates claim that university officials created a hostile campus climate for jewish students by failing to curb anti-israel protests. they say that a protest against israel's treatment of the palestinians was one of several february apartheid week campus events that started an anti-semitic rhetoric, hate speech across the campus. the u.s. department of education civil rights office confirms it's investigating the allegations now. a community protest against the chevron refinery in richmond was held yesterday. that refinery sight caught fire in august. huge platforms of toxic smoke sent tens of thousands of people to the hospital. this was the scene yesterday. you can see it in the video. a lot of folks with signs, right there off the gates of the chevron refinery. they were demanding more community compensation from chevron, more worker safety.
7:26 am
and say chevron needs to pay its fair share of taxes. meanwhile, an east bay community still in shock after a middle school teacher accused of molesting a former student found dead in his car in an apparent suicide. the father of james izumazaki is too upset to talk to him but there will be a public memorial for the 28-year-old in coming saturday from 10:00 to noon in memorial park in albany. the father says it's very difficult for the family and wish people would respect their privacy. police in antioch are investigating a series of attacks on drivers along highway 4. antioch police say a man went to the hospital thursday night, 10:00 after he was hit by a foreign object that went through his windshield. somebody this thrown something off the g street overpass. then it happened again later that night. an object was thrown from the bridge. again, it happened on monday too, on monday night, an ambulance was hit.
7:27 am
an opening was large enough on the overpass for someone to get through. the police department is taking this matter very seriously and have increased patrols in the area but so far they can't catch whoever is doing it. the attorney for a former modesto teacher who had a romance with a student asked the judge to dismiss the sex charges against her client. the former teacher, james hooker is accused of molesting a teenaged student in 1998. the attorney for him argued that the sex charges should be dismissed because the statute of limitations has e alleged vi years old, testified earlier in the day. a judge is going to make a decision on this next month. coming up on the kron4 morning news the rest of the day's headlines. we have a live look from our roof camera, looking downtown, you can see the transamerica building. there's a slight breeze out there, cloud cover too. i don't spend money

on the oakland as are waking up this morning as the champs of the american league. they showed everybody wrong and they proved them wrong. now we are going to be looking at what is next for the oaks throughout the morning. it will be an exciting weekend for them. >> the giants too. let's get the latest in the traffic center though. i know you're following hot spots. any improvement? >> no improvement, james. in fact we've added a few more problems to the list. so we still have a big backup on 580 westbound and a new accident at grant line road. we're pushing 58 minutes for the drive time there. take a look at the nimitz freeway, the backup here continues to grow on 880 southbound getting into hayward. this is going to add about 16 minutes to your commute southbound.
7:31 am
earlier problems at 92 and llewellyn both clear. now across the bay, problems on the peninsula for both 101 and interstate 280. 101 southbound, the accident here at whipple that left us with stop-and-go conditions past third avenue in santa -- san mateo on 101 southbound almost backed up to poplar and peninsula. and 92 was jammed because of late road work. north 280 at bunker hill road they had lanes shut down. that picked up 20 minutes ago. it was picked up about 710:i guess that makes it, what, 22 minutes ago. and so the traffic that is normally trouble-free on 280 northbound isn't this morning. let's go to the south bay, we've been talking all morning about how bad the ride is on 101 northbound but 85 had an accident northbound at 17 so it is stop-and-go from the valley
7:32 am
and 280 once again backing up in the northbound direction heading out toward cupertino with a 28-minute drive time, out to the 85 interchange. this 101 ride has grown to over 40 minutes. it should be about half of that. take a look at our camera in san jose, you'll see now that even the hov, the diamond lane here is at a standstill for 101 northbound. dealing with clouds now, and the fog is certainly back. temperatures will climb into the 60s and 70s as we head into the afternoon. significantly cooler compared to what we saw yesterday. that fog will be there tonight. wet weather in the forecast. more details on the weekend in the next report. we're all talking about the as, our division champs for the first time in six years. winning the division is all the more remarkable given the team
7:33 am
was five games behind the texas rangers with just nine games left in the regular season. they came back from a deficit that no other team has done in major league baseball history. a sellout crowd at the coliseum, 36, 000 packing in. standing room only and the fans going crazy. the as up 1-0 and then five runs by texas in the third. the big rally here in the sixth inning. that put the athletics up for good. josh hamilton getting yelled at by his manager after dropping that ball in center field. the as go on to win after coming back from that 5-1 deficit, 12-5 win, the 15th division title in their history. >> it's great to come from last place. it's great. >> we're proud. it's unbelievable. i'm going to celebrate with my teammates.
7:34 am
>> what these guys did over the last six games and really the road trip before, everyone thought that was the road trip that was going to do them in. >> the manager certainly making a great case for manager of the year in the american league. the as are in detroit for the first few games saturday and sunday against the tigers. the first game at the coliseum here will be tuesday. the giants with their playoff run at home this weekend against the cincinnati reds with games at at&t park saturday and sunday and buster posey winning the national league batting title. more on that at 7:45. other developing news this morning. we're going to the south bay where police are investigating two homicides that happened overnight. the 34th and 36 -- 35th and 36th homicide in that city so far this year. and will has been at the most recent one, number 36.
7:35 am
what can you tell us about the investigation so far? >> reporter: so far no arrests in this case. no descriptions of the suspects but i'm in front of the house where the shots rang out. according to the victim's friends, they were having a birthday barbecue and you can see the bash -- barbecue there. according to the family friends, this person, the victim, tries to come out and grab more meat from the barbecue, when shots rang out. he staggers inside, but then, when all the people inside come out the suspects were long gone. i got a chance to talk to the victims' friends, he didn't want to show his face on camera. here's what he had to say about the murder. >> all you hear is about guys outside cooking barbecue running into the house. you just hear shots shots fired, shots fired! the guy that got shot runs into the house, drops to the floor. i happen to look out the window, didn't see anything. all i was told was it was gang bangers wearing blue rags over
7:36 am
their faces with hats and -- they were the people causing the crimes out here in this area. the person that got killed was an older guy with a kid and wife. that didn't even gang bang. >> reporter: that man you just heard from, james, he says he's friends at the -- the friends at the party are not gang members. however, detectives told us they believe it's gang related. this is on the 2300 block of doorburn avenue. it happened 12:49, 12:050 in the morning, four hours before this murder there was another murder in downtown san jose, about two blocks from san jose state university. for that murder police responded, they believe it was the fight. when they came out the victim was unconscious, not breathing. they don't believe the two murders are related. >> thank you for the update. the first presidential debate is now in the history books . after the shake all
7:37 am
arguing, over domestic issues. that was the scene for president obama and mitt romney. jabs last night. they were asked about their policy issues for the economy and for americans. and one of the things that kept coming up was tax cuts. specifically cuts for high income americans. >> i will not reduce the share paid by high income individuals. i know that you and your running mate keep saying that. i know it's a popular thing to say with a lot of people but it's just not the case. look, i got five boys. i am used to people saying something that is not always true but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it but that is not the case, all right? i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. >> for 18 months you've been running on this tax plan. and, now five weeks before the election, saying this big bold idea is, never mind. the fact is that if you are
7:38 am
lowering the rates the way you describe, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only effect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdennening the middle class. >> according to a poll by cnn 67% of americans believe that republican mitt romney was the winner in this first debate. and that compares to 25% who thought it was the democrat president obama who won. you can share what you think about the debates on our facebook fan page. >> we'll check the markets when we come back.

fleet week getting underway around the bay. the blue angels coming up saturday. we're going to show you how to watch it on kron so stay tuned for those details. a different spectacle in the city yesterday. the navy and marine corps landed a giant harbor craft on
7:45 am
san francisco's ocean beach. we were waiting for it, unfortunately it came on after the morning show but there it is. we stuck around long enough to catch video of it. it's huge. it can help in a major disaster they say if bridges go down, they can avoid supplies, whatever. it was used during hurricane katrina to help in the efforts there and other humanitarian efforts around the world. so pretty impressive. of course we have the blue angels live sponsored by jeep on kron 4 hosted by mark daniel. 3:00 p.m., saturday, october 6th. let's get to weather and traffic. we mentioned george a second ago. he's following several hot spots.things are not getting mu better, james. we're still tracking major delays on a number of freeways, east bay and south bay starting 480 in the westbound direction. the ride into livermore out of the altamont pass is not so bad
7:46 am
getting into dublin now but look at this drive time, 55 minutes to get to the dublin interchange from the 205 interchange. it's actually slow before there. then we still have ongoing problems here for the ride through hayward on the nimitz freeway southbound, backed up in -- from the south end of oakland coming into san leandro. it's a solid backup there for the trip to highway 92. then, across the bay, continuing problems here for 101 in both directions around 92 but especially on the southbound side. things got off to a bad start with an accident in redwood city southbound at whipple and because of that we've been backed up nearly to burlington game on 101 -- burlingame on 101 south. and delays on 280 in the northbound direction after the late road work at bunker hill. in the south bay, there's no relief, no good alternates because all the three major freeways are completely jammed
7:47 am
up. 85 heading out to saratoga is almost a solid backup through the valley through highway 85. 280 is jammed after cupertino and look at this, solid traffic all the way from the 85 interchange. that drive time is now 61 minutes to get you north. let's back that up just a bit here. 61 minutes. here's a live look from our cam are in san jose. the earlier problems at great america parkway have cleared. looks as though that off-ramp has been reopened. so traffic is starting to move a bit because it had been at a complete standstill. at the bay bridge, westbound ride not much relief here, we're still looking at between 20 and 24-minute drive times depending on the approach to the toll plaza this morning. at 7:47, let's check the weather. see if it's going to be clear enough to see the blue angels when they start to practice today. good morning. well, looks like we will see clear conditions inland.
7:48 am
however gray skies and cloud cover nor some of the inland areas. let's look at the temperatures into the afternoon. 3:00 p.m. 60s and 70s for the most part. we'll see more in the way of 70s as we head into the afternoon highs. mountainview at 73 degrees. 79 expected in los gatos and we could get pretty close to 80 in antioch. livermore. 68 in san leandr, 63 in downtown san francisco. and 69 in san rafael. for fleet week, fog in the morning but clear conditions into the afternoon for those of you watching the blue angels friday, saturday and sunday. changes as we head into the weekend. starting the next workweek we have the potential for some showers.
7:49 am
every headline for the past week is improbable, unexpected, shocking, amazing. if i hear -- it was outlandish the last headline. i've had it. they are good. leave it at that. >> so you are turning on the bay area media. >> i'm starting to get offended by everyone saying how incredibly unbelievable as if we're that bad -- i say we, they are that bad to this is so shocking. now i'm getting from amazed to offended. you call it outlandish and i've had enough. >> can i give you a test to show you why it's outlandish? >> ok. a test? >> can you name three oakland as? >> good point. other than coco crisp. >> that's because of his name. >> no, you taught me early on.

>> true. you know what i'm saying. the guys came out of completely know where -- nowhere. it's like you can bring a guy -- boy, is he good and it takes two or three years before anybody knows they are on. it's just the way it goes. when you have players that no one has heard of we just say this is unbelievable. i didn't even know those guys and look what they are doing. >> again, they definitely have been unloved and overlooked. i'll give you that. >> but texas, they are the only people that had a worse day than obama. >> oh, my gosh, yeah. i was wondering when all this was going on yesterday, what is gar doing now? i know you love politics, choosing between sports and politics? >> i love to see a good fight. you watch the next one, obama will come out smoking. >> we'll see. the next fight, texas takes on the orioles.
7:51 am
then we've got saturday for the as. so saturday, with the detroit tigers. all of this, like playoff stuff, i've been ignoring. i think it's been kind of overshadowed. this triple crown was completed, the amazing feat by miguel cabrebb barrera -- cabrera. >> when you do something that hasn't happened since 1967 it's amazing. the other thing about this guy, just like buster posey, this guy is a slow runner. posey is a real slow runner. posey is the first cacciatore win a -- catcher to win a batting champ since 1942. when you're slow you don't get any cheap hits. what was interesting about the playoffs is that the giants and as, i was looking last night on the computer, they are going to play exactly the same day. they will play saturday, sunday. then tuesday, if necessary wednesday and thursday of next week. >> wow. you
7:52 am
>> you know what i'm saying? we'll have two games each of those days and you watch without a team that ties. the as will probably play the day game because they are the least -- you know. >> yeah. >> the as will be least attractive, they will probably be on around 1:00. if not -- yeah, about 1:00 at oakland. then the giants -- probably giving you too much information. >> no. >> the giants and reds will play a little later. >> are you kidding me? we're watching. i'm wondering too, with the giants playing the reds is it somehow an advantage to know your opponent? like yankees, they don't know, today, right now who they are going to play. it's not like football where we're yg going to play for this special team. >> you play 62 games. >> you're doing your own game. >> you probably -- like the yankees in texas have played a bunch of times. so they know each other. i think the biggest deal here
7:53 am
is if you get a day or two off we can rest up a little bit. you practice but you don't have that intensity. that's what you are worried about. i think -- can you get your pitchers lined up to what you want to pitch? i think that's more important. by now you've got a pretty good idea what your opponents' strength are. >> what the giants need to know about the reds. >> dusty baker wants to beat them. when dusty left it was not a pretty sight around here. >> you remember that? you were not here 10 years ago. >> two managers who have taken the giants, i know at different times, two of the world series, i think that is going to be interesting. >> that's the argument that has worked. what is more important, would you rather play because the reds have the better record than the giants. yet the way they set this up, the first two games are on the road and then you come back for 3-0. i think everyone has an
7:54 am
opinion. i would rather play the first two if i earned it on my home field. when you get out 2-0 - >> momentum. >> putting pressure on the giants. they have to win. they have to win almost the first two. >> i know that you're going to be -- hunkered down this weekend because san francisco is going to be a mess. just sit in front of the tv. >> no, i'm going to be a part of fleet week. i'm going to just go out there, take my shirt off and just say louder! louder! we are the sons and daughters of farmers who made cheese; the keepers of the loafs. the people who will never lower the bar. our world started in deep green grass and rain and the hills and the waves and the big, tall trees of tillamook, oregon. we make cheese of an exquisite standard

welcome back to the kron 4 morning news as we continue to track multiple hot spots.
8:16 am
take a look at this, traffic stopped most of the way across the span. once again, a construction area delay. it's backed up from the base of the high rise for several miles all the way back to the toll plaza. over 20 minutes the drive time and should be 11:00. we continue to experience major delays through the south bay on freeways here. 101 northbound especially. a 65 minute drive time to get you up towards santa clara. and forget 85 or 280 as alternate routes, they are badly jammed up as william. bay braj toll plaza --ñn& bay bridge toll plaza, 20 to 24 minute drives whether you are coming from the east shore or m cart hur maze. >> 8:16 and this morning, everybody is talking about who won the first presidential debate. and joining us to talk
8:17 am
about it political analyst. >> mitt romney won this debate and general consensus is if you are a romney fan, you think he hit a home run. and if you are an obama fan, you are scratching your head this morning. >> when you were watching it, if you are a romney fan, you are howling with glee. and an obama fan, you were howling at the tv. this was a president who didn't show up for the debate. when you look at how he presented himself, i've coached a lot of candidates. he violated every single rule you can think of. at his opponent. two, in his closing, he didn't look at the camera. three, he didn't answer anything that romney threw at him. and four, his energy level was just in the negative range. felt like he was in the middle of the black hole sucking all the energy out of him. it was just a bad performance. i was kind
8:18 am
of amused by watching later on some of the pund ants who was basically having a seizure in the zl84suñ screaming about how obama needs to watch ms nbc. the fact is romney gave the president so many opportunities to just hit him hard and hit him back and the president looked at the call third strike each time. >> romney had a lot to gain from this debate. did the president have a lot to lose or is this okay? this performance? >> if you want to look at the few silver linings and there are very few. the president didn't make any major gasps. there is nothing memorable about anything he said. romney came in with everything to gain. obama had everything to lose. but he was essentially playing the type of old defense everyone knows doesn't do anything to prevent you from winning. so he thought he was up by a touchdown and decided to give up all this
8:19 am
yardage and hope they didn't score. we'll see in the polls how much of a bump romney got. there's no doubt romney is going to get a 2, 3, maybe 4 bump out of this. what's interesting is it puts all the pressure on joe biden next week. who would have thought joe biden would be the savior. this is joe's moment coming up. >> supporters of the president, the only defense they'll be using is john kerry won in the first debate and george bush wound up in the presidency. how many undecided voters out there? enough to sway the vote in. >> if i'm in the obama campaign, i'm very worried about this. even though the polls say they are 5 or 6% undecided voters. the committed voters is only in about the 60s. that's a big gap of people who can shift and stay home and do something else. you've got to remote vat

debate last night. what i wanted to say when i came onto the stage is that i memet this very spirited fellow that claim to be mitt romney. however, it could not been mitt romney. because the real mitt romney has been running around the country for the last one year. promising 5 trillion dollars in tax cuts to favor the wealthy. and the fellow on the stage last night said that he did not know anything about that. the real mitt romney saying that we cannot need more teachers and our classrooms. however, cannot (boo).. vote!

fellow on stage last night he loved speeches he cannot get enough of them. mitt romney, the one that we know has invested in companies there were called pioneers of outsourcing jobs to other countries. the guy on stage last night. he said that he does not even know that there were such laws that encouraged outsourcing. never heard of them! never heard of them! never heard of tax rates for companies that ship rate jobs overseas. perhaps he needs a new accountant? now, we know for sure that it was not the real macron because he seems to be doing just fine with his accounts. the roll-mitt romney--and you see the man on stage last night he does not want to be held
